During the White House ceremony, Trump praised individual players and their overall performance at the Super Bowl, saying that "everybody played a role and everybody played as champions". "For 48 years, my sisters and I have had the best example of love, friendship and compassion in our lives!"

While the day was created to be festive, the Patriots were left to deal with the news that former tight end Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in a prison cell hours before the White House visit, according to MA prison officials.

After Gronkowski left the room, Spicer - who is a Patriots fan - laughed for a moment before regaining his composure.

(WHAS11) - Rob Gronkowski's big personality was on full display today during White House press secretary Sean Spicer's briefing.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James said: "We are aware of the reports but I don't anticipate that we will be commenting today".

Much has been made of Brady's refusal to either publicly endorse or publicly denounce his "good friend" Donald Trump.

Trump, who is on favorable terms with coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft, was unable to see another one of his friends on Wednesday.

Jurors in the double-murder trial of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez have begun their sixth day of deliberations. Several players were asked about Hernandez's death after the White House ceremony, but they declined to answer. Belichick, the Patriots coach, and his decision to chip away at Atlanta's 25-point lead with a field goal.

The Trump administration denies being misleading about a USA carrier strike group's push toward the Korean peninsula, saying it never gave an arrival date and that the ships still are on their way.

HollywoodLifers, do you think Trump was dissing Tom by not mentioning his name at the Patriots' White House visit? Some noted their differences with the Republican administration, though others did not an issue a reason for their absence.

Safety Devin McCourty, a team captain, told Time magazine: "Basic reason for me is I don't feel accepted in the White House. With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't". In 2015, during the last term of President Obama, Brady bowed out, citing a "family commitment".
